Mondays are usually pretty tough, but for us Canadians it's Thanksgiving so we get to have a day off to recover from a very large coma inducing meal. Luckily for me, today will be my third Thanksgiving meal. I'm just so beyond thankful to be here with my family and friends to enjoy their company I've missed so much ( I haven't been home since Christmas!). There really is no place like home
Anyway, I thought it would be nice to dress like a classy lady for today's post. I rarely get to dress up so  I'm glad I have my blog to have an excuse to do it. I also gave in and wore tights, although these photos were taken right before I left the wild west. The weather here in Ontario has been pretty fantastic so far so I might have to retire the tights again haha. 
On another note, how amazing is this jacket from Gap? They've been killing it lately in my opinion. I instantly fell in love with the pattern and colour. Surprisingly I don't have anything in this sort of colour so it was a good enough excuse for me to get it.. who's with me? 

Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. Amen!!! You have been killing it in your outfit posts and so has the Gap. Stellar! Enjoy the holiday xx.

    Ps- email me about when you're coming to Houston, would love to get together!

  2. Hope you have a great Monday off! Love that jacket, especially with that skirt :)

  4. Gosh Thanksgiving is the best isn't it? Family and good food. Oh, and I fully support your purchase. The blue is a fun pop of color and the pattern adds the perfect touch. I really hope the weather starts cooperating, because if there's one thing I love, it's tights!
